Once thought to be old-fashioned and dated, lace is bursting back onto the fashion scene in a major way. Lace has always been an integral part of bridal fashion, but the lace of old is gone and the lace that now dominates the bridal fashion world is a breath of fresh air with it's modern and revitalized look. From French and Chantilly lace to guipure and laser-cut lace, lace has a new versatility and for brides looking to add that romantic look to their wedding day style, the options are endless.
One of the more romantic ways to incorporate lace into your wedding day style is to go full force and wear a completely lace gown. I know that the thought of this probably seems like lace overload, but trust me when I say it can be a thing of real beauty. If you love the idea of a completely lace gown but would also like for it to look modern as well, my LOVE by Pnina Tornai Collection has some wonderful lace gown options that are anything but “old-fogey.” A lace gown with a sheer corset is a sexy yet still very romantic take on the all lace gown. Another option is an all over guipure lace gown. This lace is one of the heavier lace options but it's pattern and design has an exquisite and modern look to it.
If an entirely lace gown is not your thing, a gown can be beautifully enhanced with lace accents and detailing. One of my favorite parts of a gown to incorporate lace is on the trim of the gown's train. A cathedral length train on a gown is simply stunning when finished off with lace detailing. Another great way to mix lace into your wedding gown is on the corset area. A gown that is lace on the top and a shining satin organza on the bottom is a dynamic combination. Lastly, lace straps or illusion sleeves are a unique and modern twist on a classically traditional gown detail.
Lace is a gorgeous and exquisite fabric and I love seeing it make a glorious comeback into the forefront of the bridal fashion scene. The versatility and timelessness of lace cannot be denied. After all, it is the fabric of romance and love.
